Hi, Jan.

I echo what Eileen stated: slow and easy. Be mindful of walking to avoid rushing that leads to possible falls.

TPFs are tremendous fractures. No one explained to me the emotional and mental impact, and even if they did I don’t think I would have believed them. This truly has resulted in some of the hardest moments in my entire life.

I began 25% weight bearing yesterday after 3.5 months of NWB and in a wheelchair. My leg is so weak and feel like a bag of small rocks are in my knee. I was told walking would be a challenge but it will come back.

What I am trying to say is everything you are going through with this life changing fracture is normal, and you aren’t alone.

Hang in and practice self love and care.
